Greenland SOF Kayak Build Update – Start Kayaking

This week most of the Skirts and Skins group was working on finishing the gunwales – sawing the tips to join at the proper angle, then moving on to cutting the deck beams.  Some of the beams will be arched to be worked on next week.  Saturday the tenons on the deck beams were starting to be cut.  The tenons are separating the woodworkers from the novice.  In the time I made two tenons the guy next to me made ten and his looked better.  Not that you will see it in the finished boat, but I like things to look nice and not pleased with the look, and this step is really slowing me down.
